Sally Fenning's will includes five people she hated as her beneficiaries. Jack Swyteck is the lawyer for one the beneficiaries. The only restriction is that the last person alive inherits her 47 million dollars. The persons involved start bargaining and knocking each other off. This book has several twists that keep you guessing as to whom is going end up with the money.

Code 6 by James Grippando is an interesting thriller that keeps you guessing just who did it. This story is about Kate and her family. Kate is writing a play and while researching she finds out some interesting information. The information that she finds is still used today and someone wants it. She can't help but compare what she is writing with what is going on at her dad's company. This story shows just want someone will go through to get something they want. Sadly, the premise of data mining is very real in today’s society and the premise of this book is probably happening every day. Excellent thought provoking read. Definitely worth reading!
This story is an interesting read and shows just how valuable something could be. It is a quick paced book that you want to keep reading. Highly recommend for fans of thrillers and James Grippando.

So much drama! I didn't expect this much drama, but poor Jack had some serious marriage problems. I will say that there was a lot that happened I didn't see coming. So this book kept me on the edge of my seat and off balance. I'm just ... in shock. Not sure if I really liked this or if I really hated it. I'll see what the next book brings me.

This one was a bit slower than the first two I read. But they have been consistently unpredictable. I admit to being surprised a lot of the time. I still don't love the characters. Jack isn't exactly a catch. And he seems to attract the craziest of women. The women in these books, or the way they are portrayed, is a problem. But the plot has plenty of twists and turns that keeps you guessing until the end.
